This 4-bedroom vintage brick bungalow at 3007 W. Hollywood in the Peterson Woods neighborhood of West Ridge came on the market a month ago.
Built in 1928 on an oversized 65×200 corner lot, it looks like a mini-castle because of its 2-story turret.
It also boosts many of its original vintage features including a bridal staircase, leaded glass windows and 18 foot ceilings.
There is crown molding throughout as well as wainscoting.
There’s a library (or is that the office?) with wood paneling. The house has 2 fireplaces.
The listing also says that there is a “family room w/Rathskeller”.
I had to look up what “rathskeller” was. The online dictionary says it is a tavern below street level or a cellar. Perhaps someone more familiar can fill us in as to what this means in this house.
The pictures show what look to be the original baths, complete with colored tile.
Personally, I am obsessed with the blue bathroom and its tile- especially the black trim up near the ceiling. Amazing.
The kitchen has also not been renovated, although I couldn’t tell you its era.
It has a 2-car garage, a gazebo and central air.
Will this house command its $999,900 price in this neighborhood?
Maureen Barone at Coldwell Banker has the listing. See the pictures here.
